4 out of 5 stars Sweet

I just climbed this for the 3rd time. It's a good out of the way climb on a busy day in the Hills. This is a sustained little climb and perhaps a little tougher than the 5.8 rating. Harder than Ultraman as commented but more tightly bolted.

4 out of 5 stars not for panty waists

fun friction climb, stiff for the grade. Like Ultraman, but steeper, and closer bolt spacing. I sprained my ankle on the approach, so didn't lead. Netanis was great on lead.

Had had enough of it by the 3rd bolt... but it got funner, somehow.

4 out of 5 stars Frictiony Face, Panty Waist

Brad & I had recently done Panty Waist and as we walked past this small crag, I said something like "Hey, that looks like a frictiony face Panty Waist". Brad started laughing & said that we gotta come back & do the route so we could name it that. We did use a nut around the 1st or 2nd bolt on the F.A. so it may seem a bit spacious near the start.
